Restorative Dental Services
At Dr. Coopersmith, Dr. Bercovici & Associates Dental Centre in Montreal, we offer a wide range of restorative dental services to restore your oral health, and help you smile confidently again.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile would be classified as restorative dental care.
By fixing structural problems with your mouth such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile - and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Dr. Coopersmith, Dr. Bercovici & Associates Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease can infect the tissues of your mouth, including the alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, cementum, gingiva and gums. If your dentist detects this disease in its early stages, non-surgical preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, the type and severity of disease will determine which treatment methods are used.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Your jaw and the skull's temporal bones are connected by a hinge called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Disorder in this joint may cause a host of issues with your jaw and facial muscles, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can detect, diagnose, and provide an effective custom treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Your dentist places these porcelain caps on top of your teeth to restore their function and appearance. Used to attach bridges, prevent a cracked tooth from worsening or cover dental implants, crowns can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are custom-made, natural-looking tooth replacements which are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. These dental restorations can restore the bite between upper and lower teeth, as well as the natural contour of teeth.
Fillings are used to repair damage to teeth such as a chip, crack or cavity. Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are commonly used on front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile.
They can also tolerate the moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing. Amalgam fillings are usually reserved for back teeth, but are more durable and economical. They are less likely to break than other materials.
Full & Partial Dentures
At Dr. Coopersmith, Dr. Bercovici & Associates Dental Centre, our dentists use artificial teeth to replace one missing tooth or several consecutive teeth (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures).
They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to speak and chew properly. Implant-supported dentures are supported by and attached to implants.
Inlays & Onlays
When damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are used. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to your tooth as a single piece.
Diseased nerves, blood vessels and tissues must be removed from the interior of a tooth. By eliminating bacteria and decay, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction, which may cause further issues.
